About the Book

"Ben-Hur" is a classic historical novel by Lew Wallace that tells the story of Judah Ben-Hur, a Jewish prince who is falsely accused of treason and sent into slavery by his childhood friend, Messala. The novel begins with the story of the Three Wise Men, who see a bright star shining over the region and follow it through the desert toward the province of Judaea. Meanwhile, Mary and Joseph pass through the Joppa Gate in Jerusalem on their way to Bethlehem, where Jesus is born in a cave on a nearby hillside. The shepherds and the magi both come to worship the newborn Christ, and Herod the Great becomes fearful of the potential threat to his rule. As the story progresses, Ben-Hur's path intersects with that of Jesus, who becomes a central figure in the novel's themes of forgiveness, compassion, and faith. The novel climaxes with the famous chariot race between Ben-Hur and Messala, but who will win this? What will the story conclude? "Ben-Hur" is a sweeping epic that seamlessly weaves together historical events and fictional characters, creating a rich tapestry of storytelling that has captivated readers for over a century.
